No book information nor volume control Book descriptions rarely have series information as in other apps of this nature, so you don't know if you're getting the first or fourth in a series unless you can clearly read it on the cover (which is not very often). Nor can you even search by the series title. No volume boost while listening to audio. App will also randomly stop playing, and don't save the place of whatever it stopped.
Keeps interrupting playback. Begins playing fine then without warning will stop the play back and loose where it is in the current chapter without warning or reason. Also lacks sleep timer and interface is a bland white. I was forced to switch phone apps because my library switched services. If that were not the case I would use Overdrive Every. Single. Time.
Very limited. It's main functionality is good. I've had to lower my rating. In the last month the book choices have become even more limited. It's tiresome looking for books in a series to find they only have a title in the middle of the series. It's made me miss Overdrive, even with all its search engine problems.
Needs easier pausing functionality! Good for audiobooks. Would give it more stars, but it bugs me that there isn't a pause button in the notification bar. Also, would be nice if pausing through my Bluetooth headphones worked too.
Needs better functionality When listening to an audiobook there's no way to pause the book from a locked screen. I also don't like when browsing books and you check one out there's no way to go back to the spot you are at, you have to start all over. Fix these things and I'd give it 5 stars, oh also increase the amount of books. The last app my library used had more selections per authors. I have found that this app doent offer many of my favorite authors.
Delay time when page turning In the latest version, there's a delay when page turning (swiping?) that lasts around 20 seconds vs the normal, immediate page turn. That's the biggest annoyance. But searching for books is great, as is the flag feature!
